The #333 Police Training Suit is the most comprehensive Defensive Tactics suit ever devised. Its most outstanding characteristic is that it is capable of receiving blows from real weapons (PR-24, ASP, Monadnock 23/36 riot baton etc.) at full power without endangering the trainer. This allows the officers in training to become accustomed to their street weapons on a human target. It also gives the trainee the sense of timing, speed and weight that accompanies a real weapon. This can be very important in preventing injuries to both police officers and citizens.
Operational Capabilities/Use: This suit provides full-body protection to those engaged in close combat training. It is designed to absorb blows inflicted by a riot baton.
The #333 is also extremely mobile. For this amount of protection, it affords as much or more mobility than any other product on the market. With this mobility, the training officers can portray a more realistic scenario. This is also why the #333 is being used more and more in cell extractions.
Optional Items: The FIST #333 Police Training Suit is also very unique among all other training suits in that you are able to adapt it to your particular training regimen by using optional items that either attach with velcro or tie onto the suit. For example, if you intend to do heavy punches or kicks to chest area, the chest adapter can be attached and the protection is doubled without any loss of mobility. There are optional add-ons for all major striking areas.
Construction: A very important advantage of the #333 is that it is made with an outer covering of Dupont Cordura Nylon. This makes the suit virtually indestructible.
The velcro and elastic straps that are sewn on do not come off, and the suit does not tear or rip during rough treatment. This long life durability has another side too. It costs much less over the long run to use Fist equipment, so you can either save money or buy more equipment. Buying the same equipment over and over can limit your variety of training.
Another innovation built into the FIST #333 that makes it unique in the industry is the sectional ties that allow the suit to hang and be put on and taken off in one piece. Changing a one-piece suit can save time opposed to suits made in separate sections that must be placed and strapped individually.
When you invest in a FIST #333, you give yourself the opportunity to train your officers with the safest and most versatile training suit available.
The basic #333 consists of chest, back, shoulders, biceps, forearms, groin, buttocks, thighs, and shins; a helmet; and, a carrying bag.
Weight: The weight of the basic suit is approximately 15 lbs.
Sizes: One size fits all.
